Inspired by this, researchers from the University of New South Wales in Sydney have created a robotic gripper that can grab everything from syringes to hammers. “Our new soft fabric gripper is thin, flat, light and can grab and retrieve objects, even in narrow spaces, such as a steel pen in a tube,” medical robotics expert Thanh NHO do said in a statement on Monday at the University of New South Sydney Do is co-author of a paper on grippers published last week in advanced materials technologies. < / P > < p > UNSW website shared a video. In the video, a prototype wraps itself around a variety of objects, including a screwdriver, a handsaw, a cucumber, and even a grape. Its flexibility and sensitivity means it can be used to handle delicate and fragile objects. < / P > < p > although the robot looks simple, it uses a lot of technology. The gripper uses a force sensor to apply the right amount of pressure to the object. < / P > < p > in addition, the device also uses a thermal activation mechanism, which can change the body of the claw from flexible to rigid, and vice versa, enabling it to grasp objects of various shapes and weights with a maximum weight of 220 times the mass of the hand.
